The article doesn't really explain why it's taken 17 years. And besides, the answer is basically understood to be 'Because Larry David gonna Larry David', plus HBO doesn't require the reliable creative structure that the major networks would.

The best part? You know those crazy movies from the Seinfeld universe? Like Death Blow, Chunnel, Rochelle Rochelle, and Prognosis Negative? They reveal the origin and plot of the real Prognosis Negative :)

Any way to listen to this wituout installing the apple malware?

They just had an awesome 10 minute segment on Seth Meyer's talk show where Larry David guest starred as a new writer. Basically a mini-episode of Curb.

- EW: Curb Your Enthusiasm season 9 will be supersized.

“Almost every show is longer than a half an hour, and some are going to go way, way longer,” executive producer Jeff Schaffer tells EW. “When we were writing the outlines, we just kept putting stories and scenes we liked. And then we found lots more fun stuff as we were shooting, so we ended up with way more than 10 episodes worth.”

As the season progresses — and our nitpicking protagonist entangles himself in more neuroses and trouble — the running times of episodes will increase in length. “By the time we get to the end of the season, there are some big, big shows,” says Schaffer. “People are definitely going to get their money’s worth — unless, of course, they are watching it on BitTorrent or Pirate Bay.” (Which is where some episodes ended up after a hack of HBO resulted in episodes of Curb and Ballers, among other programs, leaking online.)

Should these overstuffed installments be considered a gift to fans who spent six years waiting patiently for another season of Curb? “I guarantee that the feelings of the audience were never taken into consideration,” quips Schaffer. “That is not the Curb way.” That said, viewers will be pleased to go into bonus time. “There’s a lot more Curb coming at people than in normal seasons,” he says. “Fans wanted us to throw them a bone — and we tossed the whole skeleton at them.”

David is still editing the 10-episode Curb season, "then I’ll probably start thinking about another season," he says, confirming plans to keep going. (Phew.) "It won’t be six years" until the next one.

I love more curb but I really hope this doesn't turn into an arrested development season 4 type thing. First the show appears to be shot differently going by the trailers, it looks like a movie. Now with episodes being longer than 30 minutes. I don't know but if there is anyone I trust it is LD.

TODAY IS THE DAY!

Season premiere today:

Season 9: episode 1 "Foisted!"

Larry tries to rid himself of an inept assistant, offends Jeff's barber and gets into hot water over a new project.

- Kind of sneak peak at the season ahead.

Extremely excited for this! At what time does the episode go live in the US?
I've got a HBO Nordic account, and we always get the shows one, or two/three days later than the US airing. (Sometimes Late Night With John Oliver can take several days to get uploaded to HBO Nordic, and by then I've already seen the cut version that gets uploaded to Youtube)

I understand that my country is 6 hours ahead of US west coast, but I'm still curious to why EU waiting 24-48+ hours is still an issue in 2017. Pirates upload the episodes within an hour after they launch in the US, so why can't HBO? I thought about localizing/subtitles being the issue, but the John Oliver episodes almost never have them to begin with. I would rather have English subs anyway, but you can't get those on HBO Nordic (Netflix at least has English CC subs for most shows)

(Sorry for the rant, just needed to vent. I realize this is something extremely silly and superficial to complain about)

Really looking forward to having Curb back in my life! :)

I can't wait for this. I don't care if it's shot differently, looks new, whatever. It's Larry David. The man is a living disappointment. He won't do us wrong.

It's season 9 of a TV comedy. Good chance a lot of people won't like it. That many seasons in, there is a plethora of different things fans like from a show and want from it.

Curb is so under rated. I don't know a single person IRL who also likes this show. I'm glad to see it's back.

Wasn't really sure if any of the jokes would actually tie into the plot but every joke had a callback and a tie in somehow. I'm impressed, although they're walking some lines pretty close with their material.

Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.

Glad to see it isn't spending the season in New York again, looked like that was where it was going.

Leon being assistant is also pretty funny, "She's not here, that bitch got foisted"

Only concern is it looks like they were trying to put too many storylines in to one episode, hope they don't try to push too much into every episode.
